Introducing The 2012 Queerties: The Best (And Worst) Of Politics, Pop Culture And The Web!

Was Anderson Cooper‘s coming out the biggest story of 2012? Or was it President Obama’s decision to publicly support same-sex marriage?

Is Secretary of State Hillary Clinton the Badass Of the Year? Or is it anti-gay GOP strategist turned marriage-equality rainmaker Ken Mehlman?

Was Minnesota Viking Chris Kluwe the athlete we all swooned over? Or was it Olympic diver Tom Daley?

Now’s you chance to decide: Cast your vote for the 2012 Queerties, where we honor the best (and occasionally worst) in politics, entertainment, sports, viral videos, eye candy and more. And all the winners are chosen by you, the Queerty readers!

VOTING IS EASY: Just head over to the main ballot page and click on your favorite nominee. We promise it’s a lot easier than voting in the November elections—and we’ve got sexier candidates, too.

You can come back and vote once every day until the contest closes on November 20, 2012, at midnight Eastern Time.

      Is every choice supposed to make me kind of sad?

      That’s a mean trick to pull.

      I feel so estranged from pop culture. I understood about 30-40% of the references, but also love that you have a “Douche of the Year.” My dark, sad corner of the library is suddenly warmer with gay wit.

      If calling someone a “douche” is considered wit, I feel so estranged from wit.

      Nope! Fully lodged in there, ninety degree angle, I take my wit dead seriously.

      I skipped half the questions because half the questions seem targeted to a gay eighth grader.

      @Kieran: No kidding. If I hadn’t figured out I could skip categories I would have just closed it down. I almost did anyway, but I felt I needed to make sure at least one vote went to Chris Kluwe over Tom Daley (who is a talented athlete and, I’m sure, a very nice young man, etc etc)
